Album Notes
"Studio Tull" is a strange name but is familiar to Iranian music lovers after the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran. For almost a decade, "Studio Tull" was one of the most famous underground names to distribute music under a government that led a cultural purge similar to Mao Zedong in China. Islamic radicals eliminated any cultural product that was affiliated with their enemy, "the West." Their most hated art form was music – especially rock music. Iranian music lovers – both of rock music from the West and of their own bands that were banned – took matters into their own hands, creating an active underground music scene. This included bootlegging new music on cassette tapes, reproducing and distributing it in secret. The best known underground music distributors was "Kami Tull," named after his love for the legendary band Jethro Tull. His underground operation "Stereo Tull" had the best and biggest music archive in the country. Ultimately, Stereo Tull was discovered by authorities. The government burned the entire archive of cassettes and put Kamran in jail. Today, Kamran lives in Germany . Kiosk's ninth album "Stereo Tull Presents" demonstrates the band's versatility, with song influences ranging from jazz to blues to rock. The songs are complemented by meaningful lyrics which provide a stinging sociopolitical satire of Iran today. Known as "the pioneers of Iranian rock" (The Berlin Daily Newspaper), Kiosk was formed in a Tehran basement in 2003, and prevented by the Islamic regime from performing in public or publishing recordings due to their "inappropriate" lyrics. The band members re-grouped outside Iran in 2005, and have since released nine highly praised albums in between tours of North America, Europe, and Australia. Kiosk's live album, "Triple Distilled" was named one of the ten best albums of the year by BBC World's World of Music. Official Website- Facebook- Youtube -
